Dude, sorry to break it to you but you do not have an internship at a financial advisory. You are being asked for a list of family or friends that can be sold whatever the insurance company you “work” for is selling.

Honestly dude do it, if it is one thing it thought me it was how to manage awkward situations. If that’s the only thing you got lined up, then go for it any type of experience matters. I did a bunch of cold call as an FA and got really good at public speaking. Within a year I was able to land a job at Accenture, now making way more then my peers. All because I’m able to speak clearly and shift my thinking quickly.

I worked for NYL for a year and regret it and NYL isn’t as bad as NW Mutual. Don’t do the job. Literally take anything else.

Also, don’t know the details, but it’s most likely not a “financial advising” internship. Companies advertise these roles as financial advising positions because it sounds better and the posts get more applicants. However, depending on the company, you most likely won’t even be a financial adviser and will start out only selling life insurance and some basic annuities. I could go on for a while, but just don’t do it.

So, I just started a few months ago (intern) and I am on a project with just a SM. I have very little supervision and I am getting a little anxious because said SM blames me whenever something isn't working. Any tips on how to personally navigate the stress? I was used to having senior people supervising my work and all this freedom is stressing me out. I'm not blaming him or the firm, I just want to hear how you overcame this (as I assume/hope it is a normal feeling when you are starting).

Hello,

I have an interview scheduled with Walmart for a Data Science internship position. It's supposed to be a 1 hour Zoom interview which includes a 40-45 minute live coding round on Hackerrank on Data Structures and Algorithms.

Can someone give me some advice on how to tackle this? Should I learn Dynamic Programming too?

L.E.K. might have taken a good step to restart a referral bonus.

How could a seasoned L.E.K. consultant refer somebody to the firm without knowing well? Is the “referral bonus” really high, that everyone is racing for handing out referrals, like “throwing the hook to see if we catch any big fish”? Or is it due to “severe understaffing”?
